We’re just days away from the 15th Annual Fitness Olympia. This year has a number of story lines leading into it.
Mia Finnegan was the very first Fitness Olympia champ in 1995 and she’ll return this year. Adela Garcia will attempt to make history by winning a record 5th title. She’s currently tied with Susie Curry with 4 titles to her credit. Tracy Greenwood, Julie Palmer and Jen Hendershott are all sitting out this year. Tracey announced her retirement earlier this year and Julie Palmer is expecting her first child. Jen Hendershott has been busy with her off stage business.
This leaves the top six wide open. We’ll likely see Adela and Tanji Johnson battling it out for the crown but that’s not a given. Trish Warren has been coming on strong in her latest shows and could be a contender. Oksana Grishina has one of the best routines and continues to improve her physique. Shannon Meteraud is no stranger to big shows and a strong candidate for the top five. Camala Rodriquez will be competing in her first Olympia and many people thinks she’s a top three threat. She certainly has the potential.
